I bought these on a lark, because of the price. For a lark, I guess they are worth the $27. But the "exit pupil" is too short so that they are useless with glasses and the field of view is small even without then. (I am near sighted, this might be different for people with normal or far-sighted vision.)But the focus travel is long enough that I can focus them without my glasses and the image is reasonable clear. Binoculars with this amount of magnification ought to have a place to attach to a tripod. The case and strap seem OK, but I haven't used them.

In short, these binoculars are minimally useful but only just so. They seemed to be designed for sale and not for real use. Celestron really shouldn't market items of this quality (nor should anybody else for that matter). All in all, it is better to either pay more for reasonable good quality or do without than to buy something of barely acceptable quality.

These binoculars are worth more than double the price i payed for them. I have had them in the rain, mud, and cold and they work perfectly. Update. They are holding up great after 2 years of bumping and riding in the dash of my truck...

"High-powered binoculars for $25! Sounds too good to be true!" Of course it is. These are fuzzy, hard-to focus low-end binoculars. For the price, it's hard to rate them worse than mediocre, but they are only good for glimpses here and there - they would be painful to use for continuous viewing. I spun the wheel and lost. Next time I'll pay up and expect to get quality.

I've never owned a pair of binoculars before, so I'm no expert. But as far as I can tell, these are great! If higher end kinds are optically better, I doubt I'd be able to tell the difference!

I bought these a while back and although I didn't expect "high end" quality or performance, I did have certain expectations.

Sadly, those expectations had not been met as they had a cheap look and feel to them.

The accessories that it came with also let it down, especially given that the case has very little padding.

Although they were full sized, very lightweight and had a standard design, the optics were very poor overall and they were not that clear and had a narrow, dark image with a poor focal adjustment capability.

All in all a very poor product and one that I would certainly not recommend.

Verdict: Did not meet expectations

I purchased these for my father to bird watch with. The are exactly as advertised I would say, but neither he nor I have ever been able to see through them. My mother and sister can see through them just fine. For some reason our vision won't let us use this product.
